Following Efraim's suggestion I arranged a new patch around the tuning 
option. I needed to patch Zig itself to use baseline cpu by default, 
which is safer in general for us.

If anyone need a more specific cpu, can use the tuning option to choose it.

Maybe I should split the changes in Zig and the tuning system, but if I 
do they wont appear together, and they mostly only make sense if applied 
at once.

Please let me know if you like this one better.

Hope it's cool.

Subject: [PATCH] gnu: zig: Make compiler tunable.

In order to make Zig tunable, we have to make sure by default it does
the right thing, that is use the `baseline` CPU instead of the `native`
one because the tuning system only adds an extra flag to the compiler
command line execution.

* gnu/packages/patches/zig-use-baseline-cpu-by-default.patch: Add file.
* gnu/packages/zig.scm(zig-0.10.1): Apply patch above.
* guix/transformations.scm(tuning-compiler): Add support for zig.

+Subject: [PATCH] Use `baseline` cpu by default.
+This helps Guix tune the package later. Tunning will only add
+`-Dcpu=whatever` which should override the standard behaviour.
+Zig by default uses `native`, which interferes with our build process.
+In our previous zig-build-system we chose to add `-Dcpu=baseline` flag
+in each `zig build` execution, but that doesn't allow us to tune the
+package later. Tunning is only designed to add extra flags in the
+command line call, and we already had one set for the baseline case.
+With this patch we set the standard behavior to `baseline` so we don't
+need to add the `-Dcpu=baseline` flag in the zig-build-system and we can
+tune with no issues.
