Client authentication is going to be processed on the socket process/socket thread.  But private keys are physically present only on the parent process.

The UI/logic to select a client cert will still run on the parent process (or at least definitely the UI).  The result would be a synthetic handle to send to socket process as a result of the selection that will then be passed to the new sync PKCS11 token, introduced in bug 1512475, and called back with to the parent process.
