How many of GX9's "5-axis IBIS" are actually IB?

pardon me for asking this if it is clear to all, but it is unclear to me from the descriptions i've read what portion of the IBIS is actually built in to the sensor, and what is only available when using OIS Panny lenses. it looks like (to my uneducated mind) the sensor only includes the same 2-axis stabilization (simple shift up-down-left-right?) as was part of the GX7, with the rotational & fore-aft stabilization being performed by the lens? or vice versa?

i guess my question is, if i were to buy they GX9 & hook it up to my Oly 12-40, what kind of stabilization would i see?
