This problem is not related to SYSVIEW product. 

Here is IBM analysis: 

IBM looked at the dumps and is able to confirm what Broadcom reported.

IBM verified that the failing PSW from the ABEND071 spin loop log records points directly after a DIAGNOSE 0204 instruction in Broadcom code.

IBM noticed that the problem happened in a z/VM environment on a z14 processor. 

IBM provided fix for VM VM66529 and also recommend installing VM66481.
