Not for the basic AP operation.

Something like this maybe:

$IWPRIV $WLAN_DEV maccmd 1              # Allow policy for ACL list
$IWPRIV $WLAN_DEV maccmd 3              # Flush the ACL list
$IWPRIV $WLAN_DEV addmac $mac		# Add MAC $mac
$IWPRIV $WLAN_DEV maccmd 4              # Kick out all auth. stations
