If at all, then sbindir please.

But I don't think moving pm-pmu and pm-reset-swap to bin or sbin would
be a good idea.
They are implementation details, not tools that should be directly
executed by the user.
pm-pmu e.g. is going away in the near/mid term, as pmu machines now
support echo "mem" > /sys/power/state.

should be carful about not breaking existing scripts (again) though.
