  It is a tool to provide digital encryption and signing services using the 
OpenPGP standard

  gpgsm is a tool similar to gpg to provide digital encryption and signing 
services on X.509 certificates and the CMS protocol.

As far as I know git does not make use of CMS keys, you would need to create 
an OpenPGP key to be able to sign with git.
