There is an interpose missing in there...

Ah, yes. The scsidisk.fth does an open-package of "disk-label" (found in 
obp/pkg/boot/sunlabel.fth of the open-sourced openboot), which in turn does an 
interpose of "ufs-file-system". The interpose means that subsequent calls to 
open and any other functions get directed to the interposing package, which 
can only get to the scsidisk package by $call-parent.
