Default Photoshop automation

I'm using Photoshop CS3 on a Mac and I have to apply a curve to a couple of hundred images following a request from the printer:

I suggest that a curve is applied to the data, using the numbers in the table below.

Old data New data
0 0
25 16
40 28
50 40
75 69
100 100

Many of the images require adjustments (mainly sharpening, levels and converting to greyscale) so I'm turning them into smart objects if sharpening and applying the other transformations as layers until the images look OK on screen.

I now need to apply the printer's curve as a layer to all of the optimised images. Is there a way I can automate this process? I thought it would be easy but I can't see a way of saving the adjustment layer to then apply to the images. Is there an easy way?
