A KVM switch would "switch" a single video output between two display
devices, which prolly isn't what you want. And I'm not aware of any way
to multiplex two X sessions over a single display-card output.

So you need two display card outputs, which might be on the same card or
on distinct cards. If they're on the same card, you need to be sure that
the card supports dual independent displays.
