Configuration file for EF6 and Sqlite

Mono now ships with a beta of EF6 which requires an updated version of Sqlite to work. If you use it as is, it fails with

Unhandled Exception:
System.InvalidOperationException: The 'Instance' member of the Entity Framework provider type 'Mono.Data.Sqlite.SqliteFactory, Mono.Data.Sqlite, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=0738eb9f132ed756' did not return an object that inherits from 'System.Data.Entity.Core.Common.DbProviderServices'. Entity Framework providers must extend from this class and the 'Instance' member must return the Singleton instance of the provider.
This blog post describes a semilar change done in the System.Data.Sqlite client http://brice-lambson.blogspot.dk/2013/06/systemdatasqlite-on-entity-framework-6.html

I have attached my App.config and have placed a simple demo project https://github.com/ltackmann/dotnet-samples/tree/master/CSharp/EntityFramework which shows the problem.
