But this is systemd-logind, not systemd, which doesn't respond.
And apparently systemd is still active, otherwise it couldn't kill the
non-responsing systemd-logind process.

Where exactly does systemd crash? Where is the data loss?
Please provide more details.
If you can't access the system via network, it sounds more like a kernel
problem, maybe hardware or Xrelated.

If systemd/PID 1 crashes, it would only freeze itself, but the system
would still be running and accessible via the network.

So my guess is, that the problem you see is not related to systemd at all.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
