A Terminal Velocity for the Rotational Speed of Black Holes?

Observations of super-massive black holes have discovered rotational velocity of as high as 84% of the speed of light. That raises innumerable interesting questions regarding the effects of special and general relativity on the black holes. Can they spin at light speed?

As an object approaches the speed of light its mass scales up toward infinite; so how does that pertain to the already super-massive black holes? Does the special relativistic effect of mass increasing and speed slow nearing light speed multiply the mass of black holes more than what it is for-itself? How much of the mass of a black hole can accelerate in proportion to the total mass?

Is the 84% of speed of light just at the event horizon and less so toward the center? How would the numerous differential rotational speeds and relativistic effects on mass affect the composition and structure of a black holes such that it would be non-uniform in space and time? Are their trans-finite infinities of mass in black holes subject to tensor quantification along the lines of Cantor sets?
