Calling Entity Framework SaveChanges() method of any MySQL (OR/M)Entity with a column type Time, an error message occurs as "Unknown PrimitiveKind Time".

How to repeat:
1.) Create a table and add a column with a DBType, TIME.
2.) Create a Conceptual Model in VS2008 Project and map your new table as an EntityObject.
3.) create an instance of your entityobject with a property type TimeSpan, specify new values, then call SaveChanges() in the objectcontext. 

Suggested fix:
To support Entity Framework, All known DB Types should be supported so developers can still work with the legacy application.
