This is just a warning. I've not tried this but there are potentially
problems with using kdm and systemd after the latest udev.

It might not manifest itself in the same was as with GDM, but if you
notice something funny with this combo, it could be the reason. kdm may
need patched to show up under systemd-loginctl and thus get ACLs written.

A simply check for someone with the appropriate setup would be to see
(via a console login) whether or not ck-list-sessions showed kdm user or
not. If not then no worries, but if it does show up there, then it
should also show up in systemd-loginctl - if it does not, then there
could very well be problems).
