gitlab: working with non default ssh key pair paths

1. Set perm for ~/.ssh/config
$ chmod 644 ~/.ssh/config

2. Generate the rsa key
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 2048 -C "${MY_EMAIL_ADDRESS}"

3. Add the new key to the ssh agent
$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa_${MY_PRIVATE_KEY}

4. Set the configuration file for the gitlab host
$ cat ~/.ssh/config
   PreferredAuthentications publickey
   IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa_${PRIVATE_KEY}
   User git
