We are using a KDE 4.11 systemd running on pure logind in Tanglu
without any reported issues. KDM has multiseat patches applied, which
were taken from[1].
We also adjusted some other dependencies, but that was just minor work
on the packaging.
So yes, you can use KDM with logind, but I am not sure that using it
at all will make sense long-term, since KDM is dead now.
