Man, it would be so much easier if you had the TV on a straight wall, particularly because a lo of TVs do not have an optimal picture when viewed from an angle. Putting the TV behind where the seating is would be the best.
But if you're stuck, I'd only do a 5.1 system. You really don't get much from a 7.1 It's barely noticeable. For the surrounds, I'd put the right speaker closer to the seating more in line with the fronts and the left symmetrically placed near the seating on the other side. Surrounds should be slightly in front of the seating area or barely behind. Forget the rear surrounds.
I have 7.1 set up in an almost identical room size (but dedicated) as the OP. For what it's worth, if I had the spare time, I'd probably rip down 2 of the speakers; completely pointless IMO.
Also agree with your suggested location options in order.
