leaky booster/mc or not... i reckon the reason brake fluid is coming out of the tail pipe as white smoke is the check valve from the intake port to booster has failed allowing fluid into the motor.

the check valve is the silvery thing that on the intake manifold runner closes firewall with hose attached to it. disconnected it, plug the hole and drive it to test it to see if it still smokes. be extra CAREFUL since your pedal effort has doubled or tripled without the vacuum assist.
