Rolling upgrade is supported for vSphere CSI Driver from v1.0.1 to v1.0.2.

With vSphere CSI driver v2.0.0, deployment is changed from StatefulSet to Deployment to support leader election for multi-master. Due to this change, driver pod cannot be upgraded with upgrade strategy - RollingUpdate.

To upgrade driver from v1.0.1/v1.0.2 to v2.0.0, driver needs to be removed and re-deployed using new YAMLs.
