Assuming both documents are of the same dimension, you could just duplicate the layer with the mask from one document to the other, or save the mask as a channel and duplicate the channel, or use Apply Image.

MacBurg has a winner. Drag the layer with the layer mask to the other document. Then you can alt+drag the layer mask to the layer you want the mask on.

Drag the layer from one doc to the other. The mask will come with it.

or make the mask a selction (ctrl click mask icon) and then with the selection active just click the layer mask button on the layer you want the mask on and voila...new mask!
