    I thought some more about it, and the correct values are like this (I
    verified this for all 2^32 possible values)

    unsigned long j = timer_jiffies - 1;
    unsigned int i1 = (1 + j) & TVR_MASK;
    unsigned int i2 = (1 + (j >> TVR_BITS)) & TVN_MASK;
    unsigned int i3 = (1 + (j >> (TVR_BITS + TVN_BITS))) & TVN_MASK;
    unsigned int i4 = (1 + (j >> (TVR_BITS + 2 * TVN_BITS))) & TVN_MASK;
    unsigned int i5 = (1 + (j >> (TVR_BITS + 3 * TVN_BITS))) & TVN_MASK;

    where i1 is tv1.index, i2 is tv2.index etc..
