Git doesn't provide an option to query a smartcard outside of what your
typical TLS implementation provides by default.  Not being a Windows
user, I don't know if Schannel provides a way to automatically select
the right private key based on which certificate is used, or if that's
outside its capability.

If you're talking about Git for Windows, yes, this is probably better
addressed as an issue there: https://github.com/git-for-windows/git.
