This doesn't look like the result of a pmd_clear() call. Looks like a

the guest (ie. the guest has a writable mapping of that L1 page

Hmm it _does_ happen on pmd_clear (which is a macro that turns into a
xen mmu update call). The funny thing is how giving val=0 can end up
as an alloc_l2_page.

Ah, ok I see the path. I need to fix up the logic in the mmu_update hypercall a little.
