Just in case you weren't already aware of it, there is a Git configuration
option intended to help with that:

       Ignore revisions listed in the file, one unabbreviated object name
       per line, in git-blame(1). Whitespace and comments beginning with #
       are ignored. This option may be repeated multiple times. Empty file
       names will reset the list of ignored revisions. This option will be
       handled before the command line option --ignore-revs-file.

Conventionally, people use a file named .git-blame-ignore-revs at the top
level for this purpose.  The basic idea is that any whitespace changes go
into a separate commit independent of any code changes, and then those
commits are added to that file.
