Well, weird because that's exactly what I did but maybe not the right way.
In my case, I configure this face in a theme like this:

(custom-theme-set-faces
 'monokai-nox
;; ...
'(whitespace-line ((t (:weight bold))))
;; ...
)
If I open a C file, for each long line, the whole line still uses the
default whitespace-line face + bold (which prevents the syntax
highlighting)

Good to know, I'm going to test with an empty emacs config + the
configuration of the whitespace-line face.

I'm using emacs 24.3.1 so this should work I suppose.
