 Thanks @jurgen-oldenburg for catching this.

 I've updated the links in
 49476.diff] to point to the new locations.

 Also while looking into this I found there was some redirect code in the
 tools.php which was supposed to mitigate the change by redirecting to the
 proper new location;

 This unfortunately is run after the `/wp-admin/admin.php` require which
 through a later require of `wp-admin/includes/menu.php` does a
 `user_can_access_admin_page` check and fails due to the pages no longer
 existing. To address this I moved the conditional before the require and
 added `wp-load.php` require_once calls in order to have `wp_redirect`

 @SergeyBiryukov I've milestoned for 5.3.3 as this is a reversion
 introduced on that branch but am wondering if it's not too late for 5.4.
 CC @azaozz as the original committer of the privacy re-organization.
 Mostly wanting to see if my approach to the back-compat redirect is
