Yes, he did.  :-)  Here's the announcement:

"The C-4 kABI tracking kmod rpm packages (i586, i686 & x86_64 -- or,
more correctly, 32- & 64-bit) containing the sk98lin driver are now
available for public download from:

http://centos.toracat.org/ajb/CentOS-4/sk98lin/  "

I just wanted to add that the CentOS-5 versions is also available.
