Assuming you can see the menu item, and thus the ACL is set-up correctly, you need to manually make your controller check the ACL too, by adding the following to your controller:

protected function _isAllowed()
{
    return Mage::getSingleton('admin/session')
        ->isAllowed('catalog/outofstocksubscription');
}

Whilst the menu renderer checks the ACL based on path, by default controllers return false (in previous versions of Magento this defaulted to true). You therefore have to code the check in yourself.
