RE: [Xen-devel] is there any way to avoid lazy updates to pageattribute bits?

I'm not sure what you mean. You can write directly to pagetables, the
write will just be emulated. It was only the 'unhooking' optimization
(known as wr_pt) that was removed in 3.1, there's no guest-visible API
change. You can of course used the batched mmu_update hypercall
interface or the update_va_mapping hypercall.

Recursive pagetables have been observed to work for a number of
different guest types (including 64b and PAE) so I've no reason to
believe they're broken.
