The correct path to use depends on the type of unit and the
"split-usr" USE flag.

With split-usr enabled, overrides for system service units go in
With split-usr disabled, overrides for system services units go in
Overrides for user service units would always go in

We will be phasing out split-usr later this year due to pressure from
systemd upstream to stop supporting it.

Anyway, there are already functions to get the correct path based on
pkg-config in the systemd.eclass.
