How are you with setting up windows systems for smart card logins?

Do you have much experience with virtualisation tools such as qemu/kvm?

I've not really looked at this area, but the first question I have is:
how does a windows client know to accept a smart card login, and what
certificate it should trust. 

Accepting the PKINIT request already works (we test this in 'make
test'), but surely there will be many more things to fix.
