But why does xen flush TLB upon the type change? And we already know that guest kernel will flush the TLB in order to make the page table modifications take effect.

The comment beside the code you reference explains why this is required for safety.

On a more pragmatic view however, there is no Xen can trust that guest kernels are operating correctly.
