Default Boxer 52 plate 2.8 hdi - turbo or head gasket blown?

So it looks like old faithful is on its last legs!

The boxer is blowing white smoke like a chimney on revving, there is also a humming/whistling noise from drivers side of engine when revving.
Popped 2 litres of oil in, checked the dipstick after a run and also after being settled for a couple of hours.
Its not even up to the minimum line! Showed it to mechanic who says its burning oil and hes snowed under too look at it.
Looking at youtube im more inclined to say its the turbo rather than the head gasket, but what do i know about duck farming! Hence any feedback appreciated.
My question is...... is it cost effective to get it repaired or let it give up the ghost?
