macaddr_acl=1 means that addresses will be accepted unless they are in
the deny list. In other words, you accept all addresses in
hostapd.accept and then all addresses even if they are not in
hostapd.accept.. macaddr_acl=0 is more likely the option you are looking
for, if you have a list of addresses that should be accepted.

No, but ath0 sounds more like madwifi and MAC address filtering in
hostapd is not supported with the madwifi driver.
