Given that you are familiar with git, the function to fix to get this
working is the one liner `vc-git-register':

(defun vc-git-register (files &optional rev comment)
  "Register FILE into the git version-control system."
  (vc-git-command nil 0 files "update-index" "--add" "--"))

just add the correct command(s) to run to vc-git-command, and it should

In case above vc-git-register is called like this:

(vc-git-register "/tmp/zonk2/")
