Looks like it needs a $(basename) as well, since passfile is relative to 
the -C directory. But otherwise, looks like it could do the trick:

$ git --version
git version 2.6.1

$ pwd

$ mkdir foo bar

$ (cd foo; git init)
Initialized empty Git repository in /Users/brian/tmp/foo/.git/

$ (cd bar; git init)
Initialized empty Git repository in /Users/brian/tmp/bar/.git/

$ touch foo/baz

$ git -C foo add foo/baz
fatal: pathspec 'foo/baz' did not match any files

$ git -C foo add baz
$ mkdir foo/qux
$ touch foo/qux/xyzzy
$ git -C foo/qux add xyzzy
$ git -C foo/qux commit -m 'Yay'
[master (root-commit) 1b19fc0] Yay
  2 files changed, 0 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
  create mode 100644 baz
  create mode 100644 qux/xyzzy
