All but one symbols that select RATIONAL are tristate, but RATIONAL
itself is bool.  Change it to tristate, so the rational fractions
support code can be modular if no builtin code relies on it.

While at it, add support for compile-testing and provide a help text.

Exposed by commit b6c75c4afceb8bc0 ("lib/math/rational: add Kunit test

I'm not so happy RATIONAL_KUNIT_TEST selects RATIONAL, as test code
should depend on the presence of the feature to test.  Else enabling
a test may add unneeded code to a production kernel.
Perhaps the "if COMPILE_TEST" should be dropped, making RATIONAL
visible, so RATIONAL_KUNIT_TEST can depend on RATIONAL instead?
